Lunch was at Taco Bell, and we had order numbers 121, 122, and 123. The cool thing is that they're relatively prime, and each have only 2 factors. The even cooler thing was that when I said that one was a perfect square, someone asked if that was so, and without thinking, I said, "Sure, 110 + 11". Which means that I've managed to shove binomial expansion into some fast non-visual memory location. Normally, I have to visualize math to do it, but this was non-visual and fast. The open question is whether this can be used to make understanding faster, or if it's just a cache for well-used, well-understood algorithms.
Not poppy, nor mandragora,
Nor all the drowsy syrups of the world,
Shall ever medicine thee to that sweet sleep
Which thou owedst yesterday. -- Shakespeare, Othello, act 3.
Knowledge is tricky, sometimes precious, sometimes terrible. I'm still learning how to manage it, and how to manage my thoughts and feelings which are based on my knowledge. Yay life. ;)
